Main Street Approach

The Main Street Four-Point Approach® is a unique preservation-based economic development tool that enables Grand Haven Main Street to effectively revitalize our downtown and neighborhood business districts by leveraging local assets, including historic, cultural, and architectural resources, as well as local enterprises and community pride. It is a comprehensive strategy that addresses the variety of issues and problems that challenge traditional commercial districts.

This Four-Point Approach involves the formation and implementation of four committees–Organization Committee, Design, Promotions Committee, Economic Restructuring – each with distinct responsibilities.
